Offering a wonderful piece of HOBNAIL ART GLASS in cranberry.  The FENTON ART GLASS COMPANY introduced the hobnail pattern in 1939 and it continued to be their most popular and best selling glass patterns of all times.

The pitcher, called a SQUAT JUG because of its round shape, is beautiful with an applied crimped designed handle. The glass handle has a slight ruby gold tinge, similar to Amberina glass.

The squat jug was popular in several colors of opalescent glass, including cranberry opalescent.  This piece is unusual in that it is not opalescent glass as well as the ruby gold handle.  Standing about 5 ½” tall, the piece does not have the Fenton logo mark on the bottom, signifying it is pre-1970. The hobnail squat jug in cranberry was introduced in 1940 and discontinued in 1950.The piece is in excellent condition and has no chips, cracks or repairs. 

Fenton Cranberry Glass: Fenton Cranberry Glass pieces boasts genuine gold, the catalyst for transforming the molten glass into the iconic, vibrant cranberry hue. Its creation requires mastery of both the glass-blowing artistry and the scientific knowledge to mix the specific gold chloride formula. In some cases, up to 25 artisans are needed to craft a single piece.
